(Re)counting the Uncounted. Replication and Contextualisation of Dutch and Belgian Premodern Population Estimates (1350-1800)

  • Project lead: Rombert Stapel
  • Grant: € 149.884 by NWO (Replication Studies, 3rd round)
  • Start: September 2020 (runtime: two years)

This project will replicate the four most used and most up-to-date population estimates for the Low Countries  for the period prior to 1800. Dependable population estimates for this period are the cornerstone of historical, economic, and social scientific research. In this study, the researchers will return to the original primary sources underlying these estimations.
